karzai and afghanistan about corruption, and let him look at our government, he can say, for enough money, you can get anything passed. let me explain what that means for other states and what it means for the state of tennessee. right now, we have 50 less state troopers than we had in 1977, and we have two million more people. . without going back to the senate, go straight to the president, we have 15 million more people who have medicaid. with that comes an obligation from the state to pay for that. we don't have any money to pay for it. right now, our colleges do not have one capital improvement project on a single college campus, the university of tennessee and the 26 board of regents. not a library, dormitory or chemistry lab. we can't add any more people to our medicaid and medicare plans. mr. gingrey: some of the teachers in the great volunteer state are having to take furloughs and leaves of absences and that kind of thing. mr. roe: we are in the 1940's in education. here is another unfunded mandate that comes to the state and nebraska, the people in nebraska don't have to pay fo

in afghanistan. president karzai today in fact said that he believes that the insurgents will definitely be invited to the peace talks, and what do you think about that idea? >> well, in general, jill, you don't make peace with the friends, but with your enemies. there are clear conditions. you must renounce violence, you must lay down your arms, you must renounce al qaeda, and you must be willing to live by the laws in the constitution of afghanistan. so, i think that this is the way that peace usually gets made. you send out feelers and see who is willing to lay down their arms and abide by the conditions. you see how far up that will go, and i don't expect mullah omar and others to come this way and they have made clear they won't, but there are others who will be seeing these astringent conditions as a formidable task. a >> and now to jill townsend who was a senior strategist to president bush, what do you feel of this? >> well, you want to peel off the foot soldiers who are in it because they are intimidated and the only way to protect the families yochlt wau tont pull them away fro
